Successful Third University Mission Conference in partnership with ACEEU

The Third University Mission International Conference (https://www.third-mission.org/), organised in partnership with ACEEU, has been hosted from Nov 29 to Dec 1, 2018 in Moscow, Russia. The conference attracted more than 200 guests, covering 20+ countries.

Prof. Dr. Thorsten Kliewe, Chair of ACEEU, contributed a masterclass on "Accreditation and Long-Term Development of Universities’ Socio-Economic Impact: A practical workshop on how universities can strategically develop their entrepreneurial and engaged profile". More than 30 participants from 10+ countries benefited of the workshop by analysing their own universities in relation to the entrepreneurial dimensions.

Professor Kliewe used the ACEEU Toolkit to guide participants through the 15 ACEEU standards and supported the discussions about new paths for entrepreneurial and engaged university development.

“The conference was a great success and promoted well the third mission of universities, in Russia and beyond. We are looking forward to further collaboration with the conference organisers.”, Professor Kliewe summarised.
